Forum: GratefulDead Subject: looking for some good 93-95 Jer ballads

Hello people,
I'm trying to put together a compilation of some inspired versions of Jer's ballads from 93 to 95. I'm looking for multiple versions of:

so many roads

lazy river road

liberty

visions of johanna

days between

and any other song Jer played late in his life that had a real emotional shine to it, like Stella Blue on 3-21-94....

I'm not necessarily looking for perfect version, just heartfelt ones.

SBD or AUD

And I know SMR from 7/9/95 is amazing, but I just can't listen to that version without crying

Try Autzen Stadium, Eugene 8/22/93 for a flawless and lovely Days Between...

Though some are a bit before the period you specify, let's include some of the Garcia/Grisman arrangements. They so remind me what a great singer Jerry still was at this time, despite his voice's deterioration Two of my favourites are Rocking Chair and Teddy Bear's Picnic:

Agree with the 08/22/93 Days Between, but a lot of those are similar. Not sure one stands out. Clear best-ever versions of SOTM and So Many Roads, however.

SOTM -

So Many Roads form Shoreline Sept 1994

Also, there is a days between from Nassau either in 93 or 94. They did Days both years there. can't remember which one but heard it on a local radio show ans was really good.
